Macroecology and Trait Biogeography

I am Postdoctoral Fellow at the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Yale University. I am a macroecologist and a biogeographer interested in understanding the mechanisms relevant to biodiversity dynamics at different spatial and temporal scales. I believe that of particular importance is identifying the dimensions of biodiversity that hold the most information for predicting outcomes of global change. In my research I use and develop quantitative methods to measure biodiversity change and identify these key dimensions of biodiversity that would allow for generalizable and sound forecasting of implications of global change.
